Bachmann Monitoring Extends Portfolio with Structural Health Monitoring

Rudolstadt (renewablepress) - Bachmann Monitoring, recognized leaders in the field of Condition Monitoring Systems (CMS) for wind energy plants, expand their considerable competence by acquiring team know-how and intellectual property from airwerk GmbH. This addition significantly enhances Bachmann’s portfolio in the area of Condition Monitoring to include Structural Health Monitoring (SHM).


By adding substantial SHM know-how to its already successful product and services, Bachmann offers a comprehensive monitoring concept to its customers. The new SHM enables early detection of potential damage to structural elements, which plays an important role in the operation, maintenance (O&M) and asset management of offshore wind energy plants.

Holger Fritsch, Managing Director at Bachmann Monitoring, is very pleased with the expansion, “Our goal has always been to create a holistic monitoring concept. Now we can offer exactly this. With the expertise from our new SHM colleagues, we are able to create a noteworthy USP in this fast-growing international offshore market,” says Fritsch.

The data analysis enables Bachmann to make qualified statements on dynamic properties of onshore and offshore structures. It also predicts possible problems or assists with important maintenance tasks. More specifically, SHM fulfills regulatory requirements, the reduction of O&M costs and efficiently supports asset management.

Ever-increasing cost pressures, also a challenge to offshore wind industry, force operators to think hard about service life extension, prolonging maintenance intervals and increasing efficiency. “We’ve expanded Bachmann’s previous condition monitoring concept to include SHM, which creates significant added value for customers,” explains Kirsten Larson, the new SHM Team Leader at Bachmann.

About Bachmann Monitoring GmbH

Bachmann Monitoring GmbH develops, produces and markets innovative measurement systems and systematic solutions for the permanent condition based maintenance of wind turbines. This comprehensive service concept using manufacturer integrated or stand-alone condition monitoring systems substantially increases the reliability and profitability of the wind turbine.

The main area of business for Bachmann Monitoring GmbH is the measurement and online analysis of vibrations enabling the reliable monitoring of the majority of the drive-train components of onshore and offshore wind turbines. The remote condition monitoring via Weblog forms the basis of the efficient monitoring of decentralised plant equipment. The early recognition and localisation of possible weak points gives our customers the optimum availability of their plant equipment and increased long term profitability. The structure-borne sound based condition monitoring is complemented by diagnostic functions for imbalances, rotor blades and structural component monitoring. The range of services offered also includes the compiling of vibration reports.

Wind turbines with Bachmann control systems have the option of adding a comprehensive integrated “Omega Guard” condition monitoring system, which is also certified by “Germanischer Lloyd”. This solution offers significant cost and technological advantages when compared to the conventional stand-alone CM systems.
